Hot Top Paving spurs police warning


BRISTOL, Conn. (WTNH) — Bristol police are stepping back from a warning about a now defunct company called Hot Top Paving.

On Tuesday, police issued a warning about someone driving a Hot Top Paving truck “going door to door soliciting driveway paving jobs from residents.”

Lt. Donn Watson said the family that complained was reimbursed after police stepped in, so there is no crime.

That is good news for Hot Top Paving owner Brian Curylo, who, if charged, would have spent time in prison. He is currently out on conditional release, stemming from a larceny conviction last month from one of his former customers.

In June 2013, he was paid more than $20,000 to pave a Meriden driveway. It was done only partially before other family members stopped the work. Curylo was charged with larceny and was found guilty in May 2014.

The family involved in that case is also involved in a complaint with the Department of Consumer Protection. In March, Curylo was ordered to pay back more than $30,000 to families across the region for incidents involving his company’s work.

To date, Curylo has not made any payments.

Curylo has not returned calls or emails for comment.
